This hotel on Union Square is an ideal place to base yourself in San Fran. Shops, cafes all nearby and about half hour walk down to the pier. We did walk from here to Golden Gate Bridge, and had a bus back. That took us about 2 hours, but we went via Grace Cathedral and Lombard Street. We really liked... More

Our hotel of choice the past few visits to San Francisco has been the Handlery in Union Square. After trying out a couple other areas, we have found Union Square to be ideal for us: near to many museums, art galleries, fine restaurants, quaint neighborhoods (short walks to Chinatown, Nob Hill, North Beach, the Embarcadero, etc.). The rooms are decently... More

If you're a first time visitor to San Francisco and don't mind to spend a little bit extra. It's close to everything! Shopping, transport and landmarks. The reception staff, concierge and bellmen are always so friendly and incredibly helpful. The rooms were very comfortable and well worth the price. Would definitely stay there again.

We are a family of four (kids are 13 and 10) and we stayed here for 4 nights in August. Before booking we found it hard to find a decent looking hotel in SF and finally booked this through the British Airways website. We got the BART from SF airport and then it was about a 10 minute walk to... More

We chose the Handlery Union Square for our first visit in San Francisco in august 2014. The location was perfect to explore SF by bus, by tram our with our legs (even with children) ... and relax even if the weather was pretty fresh ;-) I just would like to highlight the huge Service oriented mindset of the staff and...

An excellent small hotel, centrally located near Union Square, major and minor specialty stores, and good restaurants. The prices, services, internal dining, and rooms were all satisfactory. We had not anticipated having either a swimming pool or fitness center, but the hotel had both and both were well-used. We strongly recommend getting a room overlooking the pool to avoid the... More

My Wife and I arrived here on Honeymoon on 4th August staying for 3 nights. We had a long flight so we were just looking forward to getting to the room to drop off our bags then explore. Check in was easy and quick with a very pleasant concierge. We were also personally greeted by the Hotel owner as he... More

A real gem in downtown San Francisco. No much else to say as other reviewers did the job. It's true that the area is noisy so that's why I was offered a interior room (I checked in early). Staff at front desk was very helpful and efficient and our room was spacious enough, clean and fresh. The whole experience at... More

I spent only 2 nights at the at the "Handlery Union Square Hotel". It's situated only 2 minutes away from Union Square and that's absolutely amazing, as it allows you to around and reach the most important touristic attractions in a few minutes. The staff at the reception and at the restaurant is nice and polite. Breakfast was included and... More
